MacGregor's been around for ages, but imho, they are pants.... as if often the way when you try and get somthing to do two jobs it end up doing neither very well..... They are not a great sailboat, and a poor motor boat.
There are lots of them out there and I am sure they are loved by their owners (horses for courses) so live and let live, hope they have great fun in them, but not for me thankyou !!

It would be coool if they turned up on the RIBnet cruise, it would turn some heads for sure. Something to talk about at the pig roast.

I quite liked it as I think it show that there is 'rag & stick' folk that really do like to go fast, but still can't find the courage to 'come out'!!

I was watching the first 15 secs and thought it looked very unstable..... I was right.
